The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

I'm taking 'Green' Leaves to a Higher Level

This year I'm trying to grow salad leaves above the ground in containers/racks and that is just to get to the lettuce before the slugs and snails does. First I constructed a bed above the ground just like the Mayas did in ancient times, it worked just fine but I think the construction was a bit weak so now I’m using a carpet beating rack and it works just brilliant. Each day I can now harvest fresh, clean lettuce for my dinner.

My new collander I got from my daughter Veronica filled with goodies from the potager. 

Crispy 'Tourbillion' seedlings

Red Wing Lettuce, an excellent mix from Baker Creek Seeds


Here is one of my friends and I can assure you it has still plenty to eat.
